Helena Man Claims Bridger Bowl Violating Human Rights
According to a story in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Fritz Behr of Helena says that Bridger Bowl’s “For Women Only” ski program is in violation of human rights law. Agree? Disagree? Log in and comment. Here’s the full story.
It’s the word “only” that really gets to retired Helena resident Fritz Behr.
That’s the problem word, the one that he says violates Montana’s human rights law, and the reason Behr, 77, is decrying Bridger Bowl’s For Women Only ski program.
“They can’t exclude you just because you are male,” he said. “I’m not trying to hurt Bridger. I’m just trying to be helpful and bring to their attention that what they’re doing is not permitted.”
In a letter to Bridger Bowl officials dated Dec. 24, Behr contends that the ski area’s “For Women Only” program, which consists of two four-week sessions of ski lessons for women, breaks the law.
“I would like to avoid filing a formal complaint with the Montana Human Rights Bureau about this situation,” Behr wrote, “but I will if I have to do so.”
